WEB POETRY PROJECT Worksheet 1 -  Lightfoot         Student name__________________________
Goal: To get a vital sense of the poetry world – what poetry is, what wonderful variety is available, who writes poems, what makes poetry special as a form of literature, and why people love and need poetry in their lives.
Day 1 – 30 min., 15 at each site: Choose 2 Web poetry sites without opening them. Write site names below.
    Go to one; add URL.
    Explore the site to get a sense of the material in it  – jump in and swim around, read a few poems, copy some phrases, images, lines, poem titles, and names of poets that interest you or give you pleasure.
    Go back to a poem at the site that caught your attention, and read it again slowly.
    To the title of the reread poem, add poet’s name & nationality, poem's date or decade, and a star*. For poems you especially like, put two stars (**) next to the title.
    Go to the second site and repeat the above steps.
